to disrupt not just at the local level, but the global economy. unfortunately, what you're hearing is too much of the gloom and doom in terms of where america is when it comes to competitiveness. my view is that it is still the best country on the planet when it comes to starting up a business, advancing an idea you have or access to talent. the challenge we have before us because we are the architect of our own destiny, that there are key issues we need to confront. if you look at the next 30 years, if you do not address them, i do not think we can remain the most competitive country in the world. first, i think it comes down to immigration. it is broken. it makes absolutely no sense when we educate some of the smartest people in the world with advanced degrees and then ask them to leave the country and go start up companies elsewhere. why are we not stapling right to their graduate application a visa or a green card? second, when it comes to education, the challenge we have domestically is that that system is also broken as we look for the next 30 years. in detroit, for example, there w
and water rights that are still up in the air? i did that quite a bit of success resolving local issues with respect to land. the way to do it is to work with local leaders to resolve those issues. the congressman's approach was to write the am president of the united states and ask them to create a national monument without resolving any of local issues that are still there. i do not think washington should be doing not an overriding local control and resolution. those kinds of extreme single faction approaches did not work in the long term. >> i was writing to the president at the behest of the whole coalition of local leaders. from the mayor to the chamber to many of local sportsmen's clubs. one of the broadest bipartisan groups of supporters i've ever seen. i think we should listen to them. there is an overwhelming support for a new national monument. i am very happy to join with the local support and help make that happen. >> by denying the controversy exist does not make it go away. these 30 cattle growers on the western side of this county, the county commission voted against hav
not want to say that nothing has been done, because scott can tell this -- at the local level. the local watchdog is hurting around the country, but at the national level i do not know that a so much the case that we are not able to be vigilant anymore. i think vigilance is taking a different form. it is taking the form of more collaborative efforts, where people are working together to produce really in-depth stories that are hard hitting and take that watchdog role. it is happening in other mediums. a lot of documentary filmmaking is becoming investigative and there's more support and acknowledgment for that. if you look at the numbers over time, more newspapers do not exist, a lot of reporters have lost their jobs, that is true, you cannot deny it, but i went to the investigative reporting conference this year and there were 1500 people there, one of the largest turnouts ever. people are still doing work, doing it in different ways. the money is always hard to come by. it may be harder, but we also have wider means of distribution. it is hard to say -- there is no clear cost-benefit a
provided by local exchange carriers or long-distance carriers. when we have the passage of the 1996 act, we had the introduction of competitive local exchange carriers who were also connected to the network at both the local and long-distance level. and we brought and wireless with the advent of mobility. the key. i want people to take away is that it was a closed system -- the key point is that it was a closed system with a finite number of providers. the second thing is that at the time, these companies were providing plain old television and -- telephone services. there was not in the internet evolved in this circuit switched network. these networks are evolving. they are changing. what we have now today is basically this. we no longer have this sort of finite universe of a voice providers. we actually have a myriad of companies with the first technical backgrounds providing police services. -- voice services. we now have interconnected providers. we have autodialer companies. we have a vast ecosystem whereby voice services are delivered over the network. the key thing to remember here,
, he held a rally earlier this week. today also added to east moline, the international union of local operating engineers endorsed you, congressman schilling. so you are both stressing your support for organized labor. going into specifics, what can you detail about how you would specifically help organize workers? >> we need to get the economy going again. that is number one. our job creation plan involves about manufacturing in the very folks dimension. i'm very proud to have the endorsement. my father in law as a uaw retiree. my husband was in the uaw. this is family. this is personal. it means a lot to me. our job creation plan is this -- that we caught the manufacturing triangle. we have major manufacturing. geographically it makes up a tying goal. -- a triangle. we need to partner with community colleges to look of the skills gap. we have jobs that we cannot fill right now. that is where community colleges can come into play. we need to make sure we are addressing these policies that incentivized businesses to send jobs over to places like china. i hope we will have an opportuni
that fema personnel are working closely with state and local governments. we are making sure that food and water and emergency generation is available for those communities that will be hardest hit. we anticipate that the center of the storm will hit landfall sometime this evening, but because of the nature of this storm, we are certain that this will be a slow-moving process through a wide swath of the country. millions of people will be affected. the most important message i have for the public right now is, please listen to what your state and local officials are saying. when they tell you to evacuate, you need to evacuate. do not delay. do not pause, do not question the instructions been given because this is a serious storm and it could potentially have fatal consequences if people have not acted quickly. the good news is, the governors and local officials have had a few days of preparation. there has been extraordinarily close coordination between state, federal, and local governments. we are confident the assets are pre-positioned for an effective response in the aftermath of th
best course of action to have used these a local wfo units from start to finish so we do not ever have to deal with the switch over from what would have been hurricane and tropical storm warnings to the wfo warnings midstream because it will be awhile before these warnings, coastal and inland, will be able to come down. it will be a long duration event, and we are expecting wind-wise, hurricane force gusts over a good portion of the coastline. this will be up through the massachusetts coast line and everywhere in between. the tropical storm force ordeal force winds will occur at the coast and happen and penetrate inland and last in some areas of to as long as tuesday night and wednesday morning. the storm surge still going with the same general picture. for-8 feet above ground level in many places from the northern the large but to connecticut long island sound. we still have the area in the middle here, long island sound, new york city where we could see 6-eleven be combined surge in tied in some spots. the storm surge unit has been watching the water values all day and everything see
legislation with a republican from missouri to help the community colleges to turn our local work force training to be more attuned with local business needs. veterans told me that the job skills they acquired in the military that they wanted to put to work here at home. the only ohioan to have a full term on the veterans committee, we want to help. in the fall of 2008, i remember vividly number of conversations with small business owners with workers in the automobile industry. i saw the fear in his face and the anxiety in his voice that he worried about the plant closings. how can i provide for my family, pay my mortgage? how can my daughter continue her education at community college? so i went to work to come first with president bush in fall 2008 and then with president obama in 2009 with dick lugar, carl levin, senators from all over this part of the country. it's not just about the big assembly plants in toledo, but it's about components in brunswick, the steel and aluminum made in this city. we talk about the owner of the diner and the manufacturers. there are real problems, rea
for consulting with states about the upcoming federal changes and their impact on state and local government? rozum: of course, i think that people are affected by the decision. no one wants bureaucrats in washington making decisions that are going to be affecting them. the times that we had a balanced budget, we were talking about this kind of deficits. talking about compromise, i think compromise is important, but it is also important to take a position and not compromise before the fighting starts. this would allow the bush tax cuts to expire for those making over a million dollars. >> moderator: ague, ursala rozum. a follow-up question for dan maffei. counties are crying out for the release of the medicaid costs. a new health care lobby support will increase the cost of medicaid even further. how you justify that on top of the fiscal crisis. the municipality and what it's facing in part to unfunded mandates and health care costs remapped. maffei: i think we need to combat unfunded mandates. the other thing that we must do is work very closely with our counties. when i was in office, i wo
an institution that is durable will indicate what is left. with the occupy wall street, we did not see this local level where they tried to take over local level offices. i did not see the same kind of activity. the tea party went very local levels proved a lot of times, you did not see it. the fact that ted crews out of texas won the nomination for the republican party is because of the group that localized at the level -- the local level kind of under the radar. polls showed that his opponent, david duke verse, was leading in the polls. but then came the election day, and ted cruz sweat, because of those institutions that had been created that were terrible. however, if they have not, and i do not know where they have and where they have not, but where they have not, i would suspect a waning of a tea party activity. but even if people are not organizing, that does not mean the sentiment is not there. it is question of the tea party movement is almost like the occupy wall street movement. it is a way to identify a unique set of views that you do not get if you just say you are republican or a de
then in the 1990's, it has declined. the and the local groups and the decline of religious activities that gay people this culture that defines this country. that problem is serious. there is an industry -- the original article is one that robert putnam wrote. about the decline of culture in results of tv viewing. it tells you where this is going, so people are not participating at levels that they normally would. what does this mean for us? as jews and as people who believe in democracy? during the clinton years and during the bush 1 and 2 years, and public discussion was less personal and more significant. it was more jewish. there is no place in the tomorrow that people say -- gomorrah that people say -- it does not work that way. this is a new era that is balkanized where expectation is that nothing will get done. jews in their important because god has been them that way, but they are not important at all. what they are important for is check writing. they have christmas parties of the white house. i was there, as were a bunch of other people. who are all of these people? there were a cou
for mortgage interest, state and local taxes, dividends and chartable contributions? >> thanks for question. and let me go back to the previous question. my opponent abdomen i stand together on israel. that's the one exception i've made in foreign aid and my voting pattern has shown that i support israel and will continue in the future. but these other countries. i don't believe in gifts. let's make that clear, i don't believe in gifts. as far as romney and his concern, i think his plan will create jobs. this is what the middle class meeds needs. this is what is important to me. i want my opponent to show her plan how she would create a million jobs next year. we have a fiscal cliff coming, we shouldn't be raising taxes next year. and if small businesses understand that they'll be able to hire. this is what a small business man was telling me why would i hire someone today if i don't know what they're going to cost me tomorrow. that's a huge problem. that's why i introduced no budgets no pay, members of congress should be doing their jobs. and it's ashame that you have to take away their ac
research. i got in my car and drove around the country to interview local leaders in diners and restaurants. i went to virginia, pennsylvania, kentucky, utah, california. it was surprising how similar the world views of these people were. and so distinct from academic colleagues where i have been getting by phd -- my phd. the first point i would like to make, one thing that sets the tea party apart from many others is that they have a very traditional view of the american dream. essentially, they have a view that america is the land of opportunity at that old people, regardless of background, can succeed. not to say others don't have this view, but they have this belief even more so. it permeates how they answer poll questions and it explains a lot of their other policy positions that people have a hard time understanding. these are some signs that i took at the washington d.c. tea party protests here by the capital. don't spread my wealth, stop punishing success, this is part of a common theme. for this to make sense, i thought we should go to some polling data. i will show you a bunch of
. >> congresswoman hirono you talk about local values. i believe an honest days work for an honest days wages. you've elected more than a million dollars but haven't passed one bill to help local families or businesses. you missed 144 votes this year alone. that is twice that of your typical congressional colleague. how can you look our citizens in the eye and claim your poor attendance reflect the hard work? >> this is another misleading attack. she knows very well that my voting record in the united states house is 95% and i have voted almost 5,000 times. when we talk about not being around. why don't we focus on the fact when my opponent was very busy campaigning for the mccain ticket in 2008 she was gone for almost a month. and there was one two-week period -- this was at a time when our state was facing a huge economic crisis in 2008. there was a two-week period when she was gone taking pot shots at obama to the point where an ed toirl said governor you should come home and do your job and she ignored it. i'm proud of my accomplishments in congress and i'll go into those later in this debate.
dennis levenson, and the brigantine mayor. obviously this is a federal, state, and local efforts. the first thing i want to do is thank everybody who has been involved in the rescue and recovery process. at the top of my list, i have to say governor christie, throughout the process, has been responsive, he has been aggressive in making sure the state got out in front of this incredible storm and i think the people of new jersey recognize he has put his heart and soul in making sure the people of new jersey bounce back even stronger than before. i want to thank him for his leadership and partnership. i want to thank the congressional delegation because part of the reason we are able to respond quickly is because they help make sure fema financing was in place. we are appreciative of those efforts. i want to thank craig fugate. sometimes people think fema, not the people behind it but craig lives and breathes this stuff, may shrink -- making sure we're providing help. i want to thank all of the personal responders who have been involved in this process, the firefighters, the folks
of it is disintegration of local news which provides a different look of a member back home versus a national perspective of how parties are behaving in the house. or whether there are fewers congressman to vote for. we're seeing a decline not only in the number of swing members or moderate members, but we're also seeing a decline in the number of seats. we just released our political voter index which measured the number of seats has declined from 164 in 1988 to 99 in 2012 so really a dramatic increase. host: how much is the presidential election playing out in the races for the senate? guest: i think in a lot of states it does matter. virginia might be a great example of a race that is going to be decided by the presidential -- you do see parties not a major factor in senate races. i'm seeing something different this psyching especially in virginia. this is her argument a republican senate? host: if you'd like to join the conversation about house and senate races here are the numbers to call -- >> we have jennifer did you haveny and david the house editor and we can talk about what is happening in your
somebody goes to an area that is covered dramatically on local news, they get a lot of free publicity in that area. where a candidate visits and what a candidate is talking about is actually a series of subtle cues about what their strategy is and who they see as their path to victory. as you can see, the democratic strength in urban areas, the city of columbus, cincinnati, the southwest part of the state. the three blue counties, that's coal country area. appalachian influence. athens county near the market is the home of ohio university. and you have the industrial area of leary -- lake eerie. the blue dots show were the democrats have visited. you concede that they have been employing in early voting strategy. each place that they have visited is a place that has a significant african-american inner-city population. currently, if you look at the early voting totals. three visits in cleveland, one in lorraine that has a small industrial community down the road. one in canton, a small african american community. barack obama has visited ohio university. the one dot is bill clinton. t
money going out for local poli than -- than any previous administration. so, we've got to get it under control and there is one last thing -- point i'd make. drugs. we have got to win our national strategy against drugs, the fight against drugs. and we're making some progress. doing a little better terdiction, we're not doing as well amongst the -- amongst the -- the people that get to be habitual drug users. the good news is, and i think it's true in richmond, teen-age use is down of cocaine substantially, 60 percent in the last couple of years. so we're making progress but until we get that one done, we're not going to solve the neighborhood crime problem. >> mr. perot, there are young black males in america dying at unprecedented rates. >> i'd just like to comment on this. >> yes, i'm getting to --- >> oh, you're going to elaborate, o.k. excuse me. >> the fact that homicide is the leading cause of death among young black males 15 to 24 years old. what are you going to do to get the guns off the street? >> on any program, and this includes crime, you'll find we have all kinds of grea
is important to our local identity. they do their summer training at st. john's fisher. it is an important economic catalyst. this sunday morning, i was at the restaurant in warsaw. the place was packed with people heading to the bills' game. >> what we have here is a great regional market. the sellout the stadium. the support of the fans is second to none. i know the bills want to stay here. they need a reasonable improvements to the stadium. i am confident the state will come through on that part and the county will continue to support can be expenses and some capital as we move forward. it is up to the governor to make sure the money is there to improve the stadium. >> obviously, the buffalo bills are very important to the economy of western new york. the economy is more than just football. the jobless rate fell for the first time in 11 months. it remains well above the national average. in western new york, the rate is up slightly. we have been talking about this for years about how to fix the economy in western new york. what is one thing in your opinion that needs to be done to turn
for they have engagements with the local population. finally, we have super commanders and troopers on the ground or continuously refining techniques, procedures, and adjusting and tailoring those adjustments to the specific threat. but as i look at the fight in afghanistan, i see two fights back view it. first is a mounted one and one is dismounted. they have different threats and require different capabilities mounted it, there is an individual at the end of a wire when he sees a vehicle, a specific vehicle crossed into the danger and will designate the ied. largely using culverts, where they can pack more explosives for a greater net explosive weight that they try to defeat our vehicle improvements. the attack rate remains down for mounted. weaponot seen the lethal we saw in iraq, but we are seeing large amounts of explosives with the command wire. i look at that as the enemy's precision guided munitions. what are the critical neighbors? airborne sensors of all types, called first denial systems, pre that nation capabilities, robots and vehicle-born ground penetrating radar. as i
to address regional and local security challenges. in order to meet the demands for security cooperation and the areas of space in cyberspace, and the two countries concluded the terms of reference on military space cooperation based on which will form a body for cooperation and further promote cyber cooperation among the agency. let me conclude by expressing my credits to buy the hospitality of secretary panetta. is an opportunity to strengthen the republic of korean. the cree and united states will continue to work more closely sell our alliance will go well into the future. thank you. >> i was wondering if the us government is considering any type of plan to deploy troops in case of north korean provocation? what extent the government planning? after the announcement, lawmakers and south korea raise speculations that washington wants them to join the missile defense. he tell the u.s. government's position about the issue? >> on the missile defense, what did you want me to clarify? >> every speculation that washington was held to join the u.s. missiles. we would like to hear the u.s. g
and state and local government. you can see their the 12 month percentage change an employer cost. private is in red. state and local government in a blow. we are seeing a difference. guest: one of the things you options with government workers is that the trends you might see coming into a recession lags a little bit for state and government workers. you can see red line that it dropped quite quickly in 2007, 2008, 2009. the government line stuck a little longer before they started to decline. by uc wage increases have been particularly low. these are the lowest numbers we have seen since about 30 years. you hear about state governments especially having a lot of fiscal problems, having to lay off workers and provide no wage increases. we are demonstrating that. in recent years, which increases have been about 1% lower a year and you see in private. caller: good morning. what is the reason why they do not want to raise the minimum wage? the cost of living is off the charts. and yet, you have people working, making $7 an hour. which is just ridiculous. and i just personally believe that, i
on the numbers of units authorized. to put this in perspective, this is the only data we can provide at the local level. can get this in a state level, and metropolitan area level as well as a county level. this is the only data we can say at a lower level. host: generally you see some states showing signs of growth and some states just showing their early signs of growth? guest: correct. and the you can see that from the chart. you can see where there were increases and decreases. whether there were large or small. host: if you want to go to our homepage, we provided the data. but if you want to look and the kind of makes sense for yourself, that is the purpose of this segment. taking a look and trying to make sense of it. new mexico, joseph. hello. caller: this is a perfect segue, the chart she was just showing. obviously new mexico, we have lost a whole industry and construction. which means, that is a lot of entry-level positions, especially coming out of high school. i see so many kids, 19, 20, 21 that are coming out of high school, they cannot even get a part-time job and they are homeless.
talking points for either party. what is the biggest proposal you have congress or with local businesses to create jobs in our congressional district? >> the most important thing is how we are going to get stability and certainty but tax and regulatory policies. small community banks are suffering from the unintended consequences of the dodd-frank. ford is number one for foreclosures. st. lucie county is in the top two of the counties in florida. >> what is your solution for your district to create jobs -- not about policies that have failed or succeeded in the past. what are you doing? >> connors miss west is great in blaming people people. -- congressman west is great at blaming people. i have created jobs. the first thing i would like to push forward is a piece of legislation that allows businesses to expensed 100% of their investment in the first year. this is something that came out of the jobs bill, and it incentivized companies to invest. companies are sitting on cash and they are not investing in. we need to incentivize them to do that. >> how about repatriation? one of the thing
and that is appropriate because the white house can't be dealing with every security request from every local american outpost around the world because the president and vice president frankly have more important work to do. so while mistakes seem to have been maid to lay them at the foot of the president is not necessarily fair. now the question is what gets done afterwards? it does raise the level of presidential attention and obama in the last debate said here are the measures we've taken. we've strengthened security at outpost throughout the region. we've launched a full investigation. there are f.b.i. agents looking boo the attacks in libya and the country has promised to bring the attackers into justice. those are the areas the president did can do something and it will be more fair to hold the president to klt. host: one viewer writes -- it's impossible to -- host: how much do you think the past will be brought up? will we hear the presidency of george w. bush brought up or is that not going to be touched by the candidates? guest: romney won't raise it because he's done everything he can to dis
guess you voted democrat in your local elections and that's an important demographic. if the president does well, a lot of rural areas but who has directly vote top of the typical public -- top of the titbit -- top of the ticket republican. but if he can hold his own, he can hold the state. >> but me get your take on foreign-policy issues. that was the topic earlier this week. this is front-runner -- -- this is from twitter. there were e-mail's saying there was a militant group responsible for that attack. does this play in florida? guest: first of all, the president did extremely well and am the first in line to say he did not do well on the first day but he's done exceedingly well on the second two debates. what you saw on the debate on foreign policy was the ever- changing mitt romney, the etch a sketch mitt romney changing his position. he said at no time line in afghanistan. now he says he likes the idea of a time line and we have to get out quickly. but at the end of the day, the accumulation of what the american people saw in that debate was pretty much the romney saying me to t
of local creditors. i'm curious to know, however, what you think about what breaking up the bank's mean. it would you consider, like in the u.k., effectively breaking up the banks and some of the onerous leverage requirements required by a spinoff. is that a break up? secondly, towards the larger macro economic problem, to the extent to which you think about these either middle of the way regulatory programs as a stepping stone to an eventual break up, so you could imagine some kind of basel-esque world where you say what we're going to try to do is to reinvent trading assets. if we see some kind of instability, what we're going to do is. to that second step trackless been off those operations in an effort to this incentivize on the part of the larger banks overly speculative behavior, a particularly because the larger economy keels and use that as a part of time horizon for evaluating the effectiveness of observing those assets and developing more metrics for assessing the potential for what subsidies are available for the larger -- >> you directed that to fill up, but i would also lik
. there is radicalization. it is not there yet, but in places this is a day to day struggle. law enforcement and the local civilians are killed by the radicals. russia has a serious problem on their hands with that. beyond that, a lot of analysts point out that for the russian government, for an interim pension were there is an insurgency or even a civilian mass protests is a big no. that is why they want to support the syrian regime. let's not forget that this is in syria. a minority rule by the group that is close over 80% of the population which is sunni. somehow, the russian leaders and the analysts tend to disregard it or do not give enough weight to that. i really do not understand how come that little significant detail is being ignored. i find that when i talked to russian officials, a willful misunderstanding and that -- and lacking of knowledge about the middle east and islam. been referred to their own terrorists as criminals and the whole view was that these are just some groups that can be dealt through the prism of crime-fighting that's probably reminds some of us of some other countries tha
pushing its way deeper and deeper into -- into our schools. let the states and localities do that. i was a governor. the federal government didn't hire our teachers. >> governor -- >> but i love teachers. but i want to get our private sector growing, and i know how to do it. >> i think we all love teachers. gentlemen, thank you so much for a very vigorous debate. we have come to the end. it is time for closing statements. i believe you're first, mr. president. >> well, thank you very much bob, governor romney, and to lynn university. you know, you've now heard three debates, months of campaigning and way too many tv commercials. and now you've got a choice. you know, over the last four years, we've made real progress digging our way out of policies that gave us two prolonged wars, record deficits and the worst economic crisis since the great depression. and governor romney wants to take us back to those policies-- a foreign policy that's wrong and reckless; economic policies that won't create jobs, won't reduce our deficit, but will make sure that folks at the very top don't have to
the local provincial -- they are not competing for capital. this is the model of state capitalism that has to be confronted and addressed. this is where i applaud my friend, tim rice. >> we will come back. let me start on the currency question. should the president be considering china a currency manipulator? >> i am for both of them and i suspect that you are for one of them. i think if you have -- if you have the rule that people who manage the metula their currency should be labelled as such and you know that china is doing this, not labeling them seems cognitively dissonant to me. it is true, and as a member of the administration i would scratch my head in meetings with colleagues, and what people will tell you, people will tell you, we understand this and it makes sense. but if you are sitting across the table to negotiate with these people, this is not going to get them where you want to go. i have never sat at the table and negotiated. if that is the case, don't have a policy that says that we will label people, and did not label them. i don't think this would do as much as levin or
a vice president of a local bank, but she hit the glass ceiling. she trained people who would end up becoming her bosses during the course of her career. she didn't complain. that's not what you did in that generation. and this is one of the reasons why one of the first -- the first bill i signed was something called the lily ledbetter bill. and it's named after this amazing woman who had been doing the same job as a man for years, found out that she was getting paid less, and the supreme court said that she couldn't bring suit because she should have found about it earlier, whereas she had no way of finding out about it. so we fixed that. and that's an example of the kind of advocacy that we need, because women are increasingly the breadwinners in the family. this is not just a women's issue, this is a family issue, this is a middle-class issue, and that's why we've got to fight for it. it also means that we've got to make sure that young people like yourself are able to afford a college education. earlier, governor romney talked about he wants to make pell grants and other educatio
